Hello students, parents, teachers, and other browsers! My name is Dustin Brown and I am a social studies teacher at Seckman High School in Imperial, MO. This is my 11th year in education and I am constantly striving to improve my practice and my students' learning.
I believe that History is about much more than memorizing names, dates, and places. We study the past so we have a better idea of how to live in the present and the future. Studying History improves reading, writing, and speaking skills and improves critical thinking. The ability to solve problems is a critical skill that studying history helps to foster.
I am also a former coach. I believe that through sports and activities, students learn life skills that they may not be able to learn in any other situation. I believe wholeheartedly that participation in interscholastic activities is an important component of our educational offering.
I am very glad that you have taken a look at my website, even though it is a work in progress. I have no doubt that it can be a valuable tool in assisting students and parents to have a more successful experience. Thanks again and feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
